This is an old story, but I finally found the courage to post something on Medium. https://medium.com/road-trips/cfce8cb4c53

This is intensely awesome. Get your weekend started on the right foot by watching the interpretative dance version of Queens', 'Don't Stop Me Now.' Just effing brilliant!

Best line in this article about Elizabeth Warren (running for the senate in Massachusetts and in Doonsbury).

"But the expectation that she’s Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle also allows Warren to wield a shiv."

They ended up with tons of them in the end, but come on, how can you not like knitted penguin suits?

Andy and I are having a custom bikes/potting shed built at the end of our very narrow driveway. The shed is already beautiful. Brennan at micro-structures is very talented.

Women referring to themselves as girls has always been something of a personal pet peeve.

This made my day.

I like that this comes at the problem from the other side. Here's a great article on the subject: http://techcrunch.com/2011/11/19/racism-and-meritocracy/

We've been frequenting the Blue Olive since the little cafe opened a few years ago. The food is consistently delicious, and the service very good. Try the decadent Pasticio if offered as a special. Both meat and vegetarian menu options are worth ordering. We've been here a hundred times, and have never had a bad lunch or dinner.

Six of us met here for dinner on a Thursday night. We made reservations a couple of weeks in advance for 7:00pm. The atmosphere was dark, woodsy and loud. There were stunning white floral arrangements which, unfortunately, were primarily composed of the highly fragrant Star Lily. Beautiful, but way too much floral perfume for a restaurant. Our group was completely assembled at 7:05pm, and then we started to wait. Despite having reservations, and the restaurant confirming those reservations we found ourselves waiting around thirty minutes to be seated. During our wait, we ordered drinks, which came ten minutes after we'd been seated, about twenty minutes after ordering. We were seated in the middle of the room, and it was very loud. Could barely hear the person next to you. The service was Portland hipster arrogance at it's finest, which translates to a nonchalant attitude towards bringing food, and drinks. We were frequently without drinks - despite ordering two bottles of wine. We were never asked if we'd like additional cocktails. Had to ask when the wine was coming, and were told "we are setting it up now." Not sure what "setting it up" meant. The appetizer course was mediocre and incredibly expensive. The deviled eggs are actually a deviled egg - one egg for $16. The oysters were fine, but way over-priced. Entrees were middling at best and definitely not worth the average $30 price. Two of us had the trout in crazy water. Trout was cooked well, but seriously over-salted. Crazy water is a salted water with fish sauce, and it appeared that the chef also added some additional salt on top. No vegetables were included. The table ordered sides, Brussels sprouts and broccoli, which arrived ten minutes before the entrees and not all at once. One person had the chicken, and another the pork chop, and another the hamburger. The chicken and pork chop were fine - nothing terrific. The waiter never actually asked if we were enjoying our meal, and if everything was acceptable. Unfortunately, the party member enjoying the $16 hamburger found a long hair deep fried with a potato in her food. We brought this to the attention of the waitstaff, and they comp'd the hamburger, and bought us all dessert, which was nice. Alarming that the hair in the food happened, but not surprising given the sloppy execution of the entire meal. Overall, the experience was very disappointing. Waiting around without drinks. No opportunity for conversation given the noise level. The over-whelming smell of Star Lilies confusing the palate. Arrogant and lazy service with mediocre food, bundled together with a final bill that should have reflected much better food and service. Given the incredible choice we have in Portland for exceptional food and drink, there is absolutely no reason to go to The Woodsman Tavern. We won't be going back.
